Funfetti Cake Cups

These little cakes are simple to make.
They are the perfect size for a single serving.
They are low in fat.
And, they cook in 1 minute, literally.

All you need for 4 servings is:
1/2 cup cake mix (funfetti or any other)
2 oz diet orange soda (I know, another soda & cake mix combo...I swear, this is the only thing we use soda for in my house...my kids don't like to drink "fizz", they prefer water...It's true!!!)
4 espresso cups (NOT 4 cups espresso, hee-hee)
Whipped Cream
Sprinkles (if you like)

Mix the cake mix and soda, distribute evenly into the espresso cups.
Microwave for 1 minute (microwave ovens vary, you may need more or less time, they are finished when the cakes rise and look "dry" on top, use the toothpick test to be sure).
Remove from microwave and let cool.
Top with whipped cream and sprinkles, serve immediately!
For a single serving...(say if Mom wants a teeny-tiny dessert after everyone has gone to bed)...
use 2 Tbsp cake mix and 1/2 oz (1Tbsp) diet soda, reduce the microwave time to 30 seconds!
2 out of 2 taste testers approve this recipe, declaring these cake cups to be "Super Duper Great!"
